Global Warming ?

Global warming….. is it causing the "Northern Ice Caps" to melt? thus causing the oceans to rise? therefore, the issuing floods to come?

If this is true? then this place, -one of the lowest in the world, the "Netherlands," would be flooding now!

Read their Embassy report April 2009.

Netherlands Embassy Washington DC

The Netherlands’ Embassy statement  about their Environment and Nature, there is no mention of there upcoming demise. No mention of Global Warming.

Please, read this below about the Netherlands, their is no mention of current concern from them, on the Global Warming Issue, and they would be the first to be swallowed up in the Global Warming Floods..

 

First:

The Netherlands is prepared for a once in 10,000 year flood.

Floods

The areas of the Netherlands that are above sea level In years past, the Dutch coastline has changed considerably as a result of human intervention and natural disasters. Most notable in terms of land loss is the 1134 storm, which created the archipelago of Zeeland in the south west. The St. Elizabeth flood of 1421 and the mismanagement in its aftermath destroyed a newly reclaimed polder, replacing it with the 72 square kilometers (28 sq mi) Biesbosch tidal floodplains in the south-centre. Most recently parts of Zeeland were flooded during the North Sea Flood of 1953 when 1,836 people were killed, after which the Delta Plan was executed.

The disasters were partially increased in severity through human influence. People had drained relatively high lying swampland to use it as farmland. This drainage caused the fertile peat to compress and the ground level to drop, locking the land users in a vicious circle whereby they would lower the water level to compensate for the drop in ground level, causing the underlying peat to compress even more. The problem remains unsolvable to this day. Also, up until the 19th century peat was mined, dried, and used for fuel, further adding to the problem.

To guard against floods, a series of defenses against the water were contrived. In the first millennium AD, villages and farmhouses were built on man-made hills called terps. Later, these terps were connected by dikes. In the 12th century, local government agencies called "waterschappen" (English "water bodies") or "hoogheemraadschappen" ("high home councils") started to appear, whose job it was to maintain the water level and to protect a region from floods. (These agencies exist to this day, performing the same function.) As the ground level dropped, the dykes by necessity grew and merged into an integrated system. By the 13th century, windmills had come into use in order to pump water out of areas below sea level. The windmills were later used to drain lakes, creating the famous polders. In 1932, the Afsluitdijk (English "Closure Dyke") was completed, blocking the former Zuiderzee (Southern Sea) from the North Sea and thus creating the IJsselmeer (IJssel Lake). It became part of the larger Zuiderzee Works in which four polders totalling 2,500 km2 (965 mi2) were reclaimed from the sea.[11][12]

[edit] Delta works

Main article: Delta Works

The Delta Works in the southwest of the NetherlandsAfter the 1953 disaster, the Delta project, a vast construction effort designed to end the threat from the sea once and for all, was launched in 1958 and largely completed in 2002. The official goal of the Delta project was to reduce the risk of flooding in the province of Zeeland to once per 10,000 years. (For the rest of the country, the protection-level is once per 4,000 years.) This was achieved by raising 3,000 kilometers (1,864 miles) of outer sea-dykes and 10,000 kilometres (6,200 miles) of inner, canal, and river dikes to "delta" height, and by closing off the sea estuaries of the Zeeland province. New risk assessments occasionally show problems requiring additional Delta project dyke reinforcements. The Delta project is one of the largest construction efforts in human history and is considered by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

Additionally, the Netherlands is one of the countries that may suffer most from climatic change. Not only is the rising sea a problem, but also erratic weather patterns may cause the rivers to overflow.[13][14][15]

Netherland Embassy Washington DC

The Netherland’s Embassy statement  about their Environment and Nature, there is no mention of there upcoming demise. No mention of Global Warming. 

Environment

A healthy environment is of vital importance to us all. The Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality also works for a healthier environment by developing policy on water, manure and pesticides. Clean water is vital for agriculture, nature, recreation and fisheries. Without sufficient water, the quality of food suffers, as well as the quality of nature areas so that recreation is made impossible. The Dutch Government is working to improve water quality through implementation of the European Water Directive, minerals and crop protection policy, and policy on lake and river beds and dredging.

The high intensity of agricultural production in the Netherlands affects our environment and water. Minerals and ammonia emissions into the environment can be harmful: too many minerals pollute surface waters such as rivers, streams and lakes. Too many minerals also cause eutrophication of groundwater. Eutrophication means that there are too many nutrients in the water. Algae in the water take up all the oxygen so that the water turns green when it reaches the surface. Over the last few decades, the Netherlands has implemented manure policy to reduce the contamination of groundwater and surface water with minerals such as phosphate and nitrogen. Our manure policy is also intended to implement the European Nitrate Directive.

Crop protection is a vital component of sustainable agricultural production, but careless use of crop protection substances can also affect water quality. The Government aims to balance good environmental quality with opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovation and a good competitive position. Policy to this effect is set out in a Policy document on sustainable crop protection, to 2010.

Nature

The Netherlands ranks among the smaller countries in Western Europe. It is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. In rural areas but also in and around cities, there must be sufficient room for nature. This is important for nature itself, as well as for the people. Dutch nature policy aims to ensure that people can enjoy nature and that nature is preserved for future generations. To provide room for nature the government wants to protect existing nature and promote the development of new nature areas. Dutch nature policy centres on the creation of a web of nature areas that is to cover the whole of the country: the National Ecological Network. It will include all national parks but also the wetlands, so typical for the Dutch landscape, and the Wadden Sea. In addition to nature areas the network will also include production forests and farmland such as grasslands used as breeding sites for meadowbirds.

The National Ecological Network is of paramount importance for the survival of plants and animals nationally and internationally. Especially since over the last 50 years nearly 500 of the more than 1400 plant species in the Netherlands have decreased in number, and more than 40 died out. The number of species of breeding birds has fallen by a third.

On the small area of land that it has the Netherlands wishes to create more room for nature and other valuable landscapes. To this end land is purchased and farmers are asked to participate in nature management. Much effort also goes into conservation measures and making the landscape more attractive. Farmers who have traditionally determined the face of the Dutch landscape can again play a major role. Farmers’ organisations have been set up with the specific aim of maintaining nature and landscape or improving the environment in a certain region. Farmers who become members of this organisation will adapt their management methods.

Volunteers also help to maintain nature and landscape. And nature conservation organisations have large memberships. The government’s nature policy encourages the involvement of society. For nature is for the people and people for nature.

Society is changing rapidly and primary producers and food manufacturers are faced with a public that is increasingly making higher demands for the quality of the food and the way it is produced. The Dutch ‘agri-sector’ is well aware of these developments and makes an effort to balance economy and ecology. The government has an encouraging and controlling role in all this. For the years ahead the government envisages the development of a sustainable agri-sector. Sustainable production means taking the health and safety of man and animal into account. Activities that (seriously and permanently) harm the environment are not economically responsible.
